I found this while surfing the other day:

Not sure if it's true or not.

Nuhi can you confirm this for us?

It would be a smart move by Microsoft. On a personal level I hope so because that means that v/n-lite support will move off of these boards and that would make me extremely happy. It would mean decreased traffic to msfn.org, which translates to less ad revenue. That said, if n-lite support drops from this board I will definitely step up to help support msfn.

Dino is a personal friend of mine, and while he did take a new job recently that has basically taken all of his time (wherever he may work, I will not divulge someone else's employer without their OK), I'd suggest not jumping to conclusions that the products are "dead" until he says otherwise. As far as I know, they're still "alive", and I have seen no indications otherwise.

I have a different view. I'd suggest not jumping to conclusions that the products are "still alive" until he says otherwise. As far as I have seen, they're "not in development anymore", and I have seen no indications otherwise. That said, if he is working for Microsoft, good for him. He has earned/deserves it.

Yeah but they just laid another 3000 off that seems awfully strange they would lay so many off yet hire nuhi, and yet ironically they do not like Nlite or vlite too much (they have been gun ho against it since its picked up popularity) so good for nuhi but also a good way to secure nlite and vlite from being continued anymore. (if they did hire nuhi they own nlite/vlite i reckon) just my educated guess.

I don't see people stop posting on the forum, do you? So what would you call dead? No new releases? So, if something stops devolving it dies (yes, businesses do indeed)?

The link in my first post looks like it has a date of November 2008. So if Nuhi was hired, is was probably a while before that time. I'm not sure when Microsoft had its first round of layoffs though.


My best guess about this whole thing is that Nuhi would be a very smart hire for the Windows 7 team. One of the major focuses of Win7 is to be lighter on system resources. I could see Nuhi adding allot knowledge and capabilities to the way Windows 7 is designed, especially the way they are making Win7 components removable from within windows itself.

Another guess would be that Microsoft plans to release a tweakWin7 app for power users based on Nuhi's work. Or maybe I'm just dreaming a little :rolleyes:

They would never do that, they got him on mainly becuse he can do something apparently they cant, and no we wont be seeing Microsoft Nlite for Windows anytime this century they hated nlite and was recommending left and right that people shouldnt use, but we know better :whistle:

He doesn't owe us anything, including a reply. It's his life, and regardless of what anyone thinks, he's free to do with his life and his code what he pleases.

Indeed he does not but it would be polite to do so.At the very least it would end the unnessesary topics popping up here time-to-time and put a stop to the speculation.So he does have few minutes to get behind PC and log in,but does not have a few minutes to post a quick annoucment?.Seems odd thats all...

Atleast whats the status of the programs?.Dead,Halted or what?

I would think that if a known Microsoft employee were posting here it would give the appearance of an affiliation. I am sure they asked him kindly to discontinue an active membership.

Why dont you submit a ticket to the helpdesk for win7 component removal issues and keep telling them to escalate it? That would certainly seem to give you a better shot at getting your slimmed O/s autographed :)

no answer by nuhi can be interpreted in different ways, I made my choice.
(it seems that he has not posted anything since august 2008...)

as m$ has obviously no interest in making windoze anything like fast, slim, portable or transparent (they like it sticky, bold, non portable, and diffuse), they certainly have an interest in getting rid of nlite/vlite (and avoiding 7lite).
and eating more resources is a "smart motor" for harware sales.

I will use my nlited xp as long as possible.

I doubt mircosoft would ask him to do something like that, if anything i believe they encourge their employees to help and evangilise their products and projects (private or public). the easy anwser woud be he is just busy with a new job, simple as that.

wow I want some of that Microsoft Kool-Aid Brand your drinking..... :whistle:
Microsoft has NEVER endorsed nuhis idea of stripping windows, even though it works and works excellently they consider it potentially damaging to Windows, or Microsoft terminology damaging to their sales figures....

How would it be damaging to their sales? That's like saying people buying XP downgrades from Vista is somehow cutting into sales - you still bought a copy of Windows, Microsoft still got paid. The reason they don't like it is because you're removing binaries that contain exported APIs that other apps or even Windows components may rely on. If they're not there, things may not work. I'm sure it's because they want to reduce support costs (customers calling Microsoft because <insert product or API call here> doesn't work, when the reason it doesn't work is because something was permanently removed via xLite).

Just for the record:

"Microsoft does not recommend using any tool to strip out applications from Windows Vista prior to installing it on your system, as it may affect your ability to download future Windows updates and service packs, and may cause your system to become unstable," the company said in an e-mail to CNET News.com.

Cmon dudes.., don't be silly! I will buy you all a new computer if he have been hired by MS for "his" "skills" of crippling Windows. It's either brainsurgery nor condoned or even appreciated by MS in any way.

Get real.

i guess that ms had put some press on nuhi
in july 2008,a biggist chinese pirate of winxp, with much "advanced" xp modification and encapsulation technic, was down.
and the master had been put into prison.since that, most of xp modification and encapsulation technic forum of China anounce
that"we do not do modify work any more,do not ask...". in china we call that ms's anti-pirate storm, it's not hard to find ms hate
modification of its products,exept himselfs.


but the pirate's modified xp has take much business benefit, like some ad. or some cant-say-clearly programs.nuhi does not,
just moddify,without any "seasoning".

hope Mr.nuhi continue his work!
